Empire takes us to the opera on episode 4 of season 3. The song “Me” by Serayah McNeill includes a sample: “Quando m’en vo” from La Bohéme:
In Empire‘s “Cupid Kills” episode, Serayah McNeill’s character, Tiana Brown drops her new song “Me.” Her and her new boy toy, Gram (Romeo Miller) performed together on the show’s third episode of season 3, “What Remains Is Bestial” leading Hakeem Lyon to release his diss track, “The Clap Back.”
Cookie needs Tiana to release a clap back record of her own, in response to Hakeem’s song but Tiana thinks the idea is horrible. Cookie is a musical genius so she makes it work. After seeing opera singer, Gia Copeland (Lauren Michelle) with Angelo she knows exactly what to do. Cookie samples Gia’s song for Tiana’s clap back, “Me.” Check out the lyrics below!
